Misfit Vapor smartwatch won’t have built-in GPS

Product is just begging to be called vaporware with the choice of its name and, for some interested buyers, it might as well be.

According to the company’s own Instagram account, Misfit’s first full smartwatch won’t have standalone GPS, contrary to what it boasted back at CES in January.

After giving the first Huawei Band a confusing smartwatch design, Huawei has decided to go with a more conventional tracker look with the Band 2 and Band 2 Pro.

It isn't even second dog, with both Apple and Xiaomi overtaking it.
